Winter Hair Help

The cold winter air can do more than sting your face – it can also affect your hair! However, you can keep your strands from becoming dry and lifeless with the right products.

According to Allure magazine, women should use a moisturizing shampoo and conditioner twice a week. L’Occitane Shea Butter Ultra Rich Shampoo and Conditioner will nourish and hydrate hair. However, you may not want to apply a rich formula all over your locks every day, especially if you have fine hair.

“Prevent limp, stringy hair by applying conditioner only from the ears to the ends of your hair,” the news source suggests. “Try using a dry spray shampoo…before going out: They soak up oil but don’t sit on the hair like baby powder.” Clean Original Dry Shampoo will keep hair from looking greasy without weighing down your strands.

Finally, dry air is a breeding ground for static. The news provider recommends sleeping on a silk pillowcase and spraying your brush with hairspray before combing your locks to tame flyaways.

Remember – you won’t want to cover your now-fantastic-looking locks with a hat, but you still need to keep warm. Slip on a pair of earmuffs to fight the freeze while showing off your stylish ‘do.
